Pratap Bhanu Mehta, one of India’s leading political theorists and constitutional experts, will be delivering the Nand & Jeet Khemka Distinguished Lecture at the University of Pennsylvania on Wednesday, October 27, 2010. The lecture is on ‘The Politics of Social Justice in India’. As per the event flyer:
“Dr. Mehta will examine the discourse of social justice in contemporary India and the ways in which it arises out of the intersection of caste and politics. He will also look into the historical origins of this discourse and the sense of self and moral psychology that underlies it, which argues that what is at stake is the meaning of India’s constitutional project.”
